    Christmas movies are a family addiction. We bought a book for our son that is not simply a list but has notes about a huge number of Christmas themes movies, including some form the many lists floating about this time of year. If I stumble across this book I will give it careful consideration.
    (that is the joy of bookstores v. internet ordering. In a bookstore you can look at the whole book, and not only pre-selected bits, and decide if it is worth the shelf space. I don;t think the online places have really found a way to match this wonderful experience).
    On the same theme – what did folks think about the Eureka and Warehouse 13 Christmas episodes. I liked them quite a bit.
